Welcome to the Year 4 Home Learning page for the second half of the Summer Term. We hope you have had a lovely half term break, keeping safe but enjoying more outside space and time.
Each week, we will continue to upload activities for the children working from home. We have changed the English activities for this half term so please read through the information below as this outlines the changes and options now available. The maths work remains the same as last half term ie video followed by a worksheet. Should any activity be too tricky, please use the work from a previous year group.
All work is to go in the purple book provided in class. You can either download the sheets and stick them into your book to work on, or just write the answers. Please make sure that you write the date and title of the task before you start.
The following activities are to be completed:
Activities across the wider curriculum will also be set (please see the link to these on the homepage) and these are OPTIONAL.
Remember: If you have any questions, contact AskYear4@longfleet.poole.sch.uk and we will get back to you as soon as we can.
Below, you will see our Year 4 School Closure Timetable. Your child may like to create their own timetable using this model too.
The children have logins and passwords for Purple Mash, Spelling Shed, TT Rockstars and Maths Prodigy (https://play.prodigygame.com/). These are useful and fun learning tools which could also be timetabled into their day. Mr Helm also included a number of other useful resources within his School Closure letter/email.
We will be making some changes in the home learning resources and activities being provided in English during the second half of the Summer term.
Up until now, the children will have been completing a daily reading comprehension AND spelling/punctuation/grammar worksheet. This provision will continue.
An more creative alternative will also be provided. This will involve a sequence of lessons, lasting 2-3 weeks, based on one unit of work which has a greater focus on writing skills (whilst also including some reading and grammar work). It is akin to the style of lessons and activities taught in class each day in school and throughout year groups (Talk for Writing). These lessons WILL be followed by the children working in school. A video will launch and conclude each unit of work. Please note: it will probably be very tricky to dip in and out of the Talk For Writing units of work.
Remote learners therefore have the option of either: continuing with the reading comprehension and grammar work; OR, following the new Talk for Writing units of work. There is no expectation to do both but of course, you are welcome to!
For those children who do access the Talk for Writing work at home, your teachers would love to see your work. Take a photo of yourself doing an activity or a photo of some completed work and email it to the AskYear4@longfleet.poole.sch.uk. Your teachers will provide feedback once a week.
SPELLINGS for EVERYONE – home and at school. Each Friday, as last half term, 10 spellings will be set, either in class or on the home learning page of the website, as the English SPaG activity. These spellings will need to be learnt and on the following Friday, a virtual spelling test will be held via an on-line video led by a teacher (new for Summer 2). In year 4, we shall continue with the 2 groups and both will have their test and spellings each week on a Friday.
PLEASE REMEMBER YOU MAY WISH TO CHOOSE THE YEAR GROUP ABOVE FOR A GREATER CHALLENGE OR YEAR GROUP BELOW IF YOU FEEL THE WORK IS TOO DIFFICULT. THIS APPLIES TO ALL THE ACTIVITIES.
